spending our sparse law enforcement resources wisely. the idea that if you bust drug crime, you will decrease property and violent crime has been scientifically disproven. we need to spend our scarce, law enforcement resources wisely, by having police patrol our streets on foot and be present in the neighborhood getting to know the residents. i will push hard for a true community policing model as supervisor and that is a promise. i believe one of the most important things a supervisor can do is listen to the people of the district and be responsive to them. i will be responsive to the people of the district not beholding to the downtown interest that seem to control our politics in this city. i will represent the people of district five not developers. i believe in the transformation all power of new ideas. i think that we need a city run hate street museum to be a tourist destination and the history of the area. my campaign is different. we are listening to voters we are not using political door hangers that end up as garbage on our streets and alienate voters. our campaign co

as a community service, i host a radio and tv program called "folk law for ordinary folk," it's a very tough one in the sense that workers at some point are essentially giving up higher salary and higher pay in exchange for those pension benefits. so to come back later on and essentially cut that out from under them, the question is one of fairness and of equity. that being said, as far as police and firefighters, obviously those are public safety areas and it's a little bit different in the sense that we definitely need to protect those pensions in a different manner than we do others. as far as other ways to save, i would certainly look at capping pensions moving forward, so that they don't increase incrementally over time. i think we need to put a cap on that now before it starts to burgeon and get out of control. >> thank you. >> miss olague. >> i believe i was one of the individuals who answered no. i don't think we should balance the budget on the back of the workforce, and there was prop c. prop b was the adachi measure and proper c was a lot of pension reform where the unions and the

point and that is that there are state laws that deal with voter fraud or intimidation, and those laws can be invoked to go after those who are trying to deny the american people or deny the people of a particular state an opportunity to exercise their franchise and they ought to be enforced. there are battalions of attorneys now preparing for i election day but we have to keep in mind that certain tricks and tactics that have been used up to this point could and are aimed to try to discourage people from voting. you wonder why can't we have an up or down vote on the president of the united states without trying to confuse people for deprive them of their right to vote. people playing this system and creating phony issues or trying to deny people an opportunity to vote, they ought to be held accountable, and the way to do it is through not only filing lawsuits but use available laws to take action against them. >> cenk: thank you so much for joining us. really appreciate it. >> thank you very much. >> cenk: great to hear from congressman kucinich. when we come back, ben is sitting in l
